The subjective computer experience (SCE) construct is defined as a private psychological state reflecting the thoughts and feelings that a person ascribes to some previous or existing computing event. Information and communication technologies are currently increasing their influence in the field of education, so the SCE of teacher-treaining students is an interesting subject for analysis. The present study examines the SCE of a sample of 176 university students with different academic profiles, including a sample of students from teacher training colleges. The results show not only differences between students from different fields of knowledge, but also that participating in the design of teaching models based on the use of ICTs is related to distinct SCE profiles.
